With the emergence of shows such as RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, drag has solidified its place in mainstream American pop culture. In HOW YOU GET FAMOUS, journalist Nicole Pasulka takes readers on a decade-long madcap adventure through a tight-knit world of drag performers making art and mayhem in the biggest, brightest city in America.
HOW YOU GET FAMOUS is a sweeping portrait of the search for celebrity, community, and the dream of making a living through one’s art, as well as a chronicle of the struggles, fights, and disappointments along the way. Informed by hundreds of interviews and over five hundred drag performances, Nicole Pasulka takes us on a joyous romp through the gritty and glamorous world of Brooklyn drag, following a group of iconoclastic performers with charisma, talent, and a hell of a lot to prove as they sashay into the spotlight.
